Everything You Need to Know About Cuffing Season

What is Cuffing?

Cuffing has nothing to do with sleeves, lol. Cuffing is when people end their summer promiscuity to couple up. September is usually when this happens because school has started and the weather gets colder. The fall brings oversized sweaters and hot cocoa. It makes you want to share a blanket with someone special.

What to Expect with the Upcoming Cuffing Current

Expect a lot of long gazes and accidental touches. Expect awkward jokes and hair touching.

Guys may experience the feeling of  ‘Hey she’s cute.’ Girls may experience ‘Yeah, he’s kind of funny.’

In that case, coupling may occur.

My Opinion

I love the idea of cuffing. No one wants to spend the holidays alone. I never liked the summer months. I think it’s because of the heat and awful outfits. Cuffing with that guy you’d never date during the summer would be fun. Snuggling next to the fire, a Netflix marathon and wooly socks makes me feel all warm inside.

Best Breakup Songs

There’s something therapeutic about a good break-up song. A song can speak to your soul and mend a broken heart. Below I have listed my favorite break-up songs.


Goodbye to You

Michelle Branch

In the lyrics, Michelle says  ‘I’m not giving in this time.’ This perfectly explains giving your all to someone that does not appreciate you. In the video, she pawns her wedding ring and buys a car. She is in complete freedom to love herself.


Sometime Around Midnight

The Airborne Toxic Event

The song is very complex. You can feel the emotions of loss, obsession, desire, and desperation. I chose this song because breaking up isn’t easy. You’re going through a wide range of emotions. The point is you’re strong and this point of your life has passed.

He Wasn’t


Avril Lavigne

After a couple weeks you begin to remember what a jerk he was. You remember that you deserve someone much better! He wasn’t the one you wanted, no!




It’s important to remember self-care after a break-up. It’s easy to fall into bad eating habits and forgetting to exercise. You begin to look like a zombie but remember you’re a goddess. Treat yourself like one!


I Will Survive

Gloria Gaynor

You thought I crumble? You thought I lay down and die? Oh, not I !! After a breakup you become stronger. With every defeat, there is a lesson. Now you are prepared to go forward and make better choices in you love life. Go!




Modern Day Dating: The 21st Century

Before Barefoot Queen I had a post about the  Love Life of a Passive Aggressive Girl. I may resume that series here. I just need some feedback. Yay or Nay.

But this post will add to that series. How can someone date in the 21st century? I overheard my professor talking to a student about how he met his wife at a grocery store. He advised the student to go to Whole Foods and try to meet a girl.

I assume the professor and student were close. Picking up women at a grocery store is terrifying for everyone. One the initiator must feel so nervous, to walk up to a complete stranger. No thanks. The approached is in an awkward situation. More often the initiator is someone you’re not into. Sorry.

I’ve been approached by old men and playboys.

The 21st century requires daters to become savvy. Dating apps like Tinder, Clover, OkCupid are easy to use but, as a user of these apps, a lot of people don’t put time into their profile.  A solid profile can make or break how people respond.

I try to keep my profile light. If they want to get to know you they can ask you out 😉 A good profile picture is more important than the profile. Apps like Tinder use first visual impressions to swipe life (nay) or right (yay). Good lighting, a good full body shot, and no weird flashy stuff. Stacks of money will attract the wrong people.

Those are a few tips I’ve picked up from “dating.” Do you have anymore suggestions? Leave it in the comment section below.
